Bed Bug Infestation Prevention Brochure

As part of the Chicago war on bed bugs, landlords whose apartments are governed by the Residential Landlord Tenant Ordinance (the CRLTO) are required to provide all prospective tenants with a brochure prepared by the Chicago Department of Health relating to the prevention and treatment of bed bugs. A copy of this form is available for download here. The CRLTO encompasses most Chicago apartments, although the most common exception extends to owner-occupied buildings of six units or less. (The types of landlords exempted from the CRLTO are identified in Chapter 5, Section 12-020, of the Chicago Municipal Code.)
